Hands On!

Make Your Own Medicine

Come learn the art of wild crafting medicinal plants. Your guide will focus on some unique identification methods with around 5 to 10 common plants that can be very useful for medicines.

Description

You will learn to identify a number of plants, how to harvest and how to use them as medicines.

We will then make some very simple medicines from some of the plants and learn how to store what has been collected so they can be used in the future.
